Fallkniven DC3 Diamond/Ceramic Sharpening Stone

The DC sharpener – a combination diamond/ceramic whetstone that will handle all your sharpening needs. Fallkniven's DC3 whetstone consists of a fine diamond stone and a very special ceramic stone, made of synthetic sapphires. The advantage of these materials, although they get worn, will still keep their flat shape this is important when you sharpen your knife. These materials are the hardest and they will sharpen any steel, even extremely hard powder steels. You do not need any lubrication for these stones but now and then you should consider cleaning them with warm water and liquid soap. The stones might feel coarse from the start but will become smoother/better after some use. Comes with a black leather pouch. Also available is the larger Fallkniven DC4 Sharpening Stone.

NOTE: DC4 in picture shown is only for size comparison.
How to use your DC whetstone: If your knife is dull, start with the diamond stone. After restoring the edge to original shape, de-burr the edge lightly with the ceramic stone in order to get a razor-sharp edge. Use no oil or water. Start by laying the blade flat on the stone, raise the blade spine approx. the thickness of the blade, and start moving the knife in circular motions.

The ink trick: Colour the edge with a felt-tip pen. You can check your progress in sharpening the knife by observing where the colour is removed.

How to check the sharpness: To check the sharpness of your knife, pull the edge very lightly on your finger nail. If it cuts, the knife is certainly sharp enough for most tasks. 

Break-in-period: Upon delivery, your new DC whetstone will appear very coarse. This coarseness will disappear when the tool is put to use.
